Juventus vs AC Milan
Italy – Super Cup.
Date: Wednesday, 16th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: King Abdullah Stadium (Jeddah).
The Old Lady will face AC Milan in the Italian Super Cup Final to be held at the Middle East on Wednesday.
Juve has been unbeaten in Serie A this season. Apart from a defeat against Young Boys in the Champions League and a draw against Atalanta, they have won all the remaining games in the last 10 fixtures. Currently, they are unbeaten in their last 5 matches across all venues. At home, they are on a 5 match win streak.
Cristiano Ronaldo and the team are at the top of the Serie A table yet again. They have a 9 point lead over the nearest rivals Napoli. With Mario Mandzukic and Ronaldo on form, they don’t have many problems in attacking. But losses against Manchester United and Young Boys in the UCL could have been avoided. Both these defeats point out the defensive weaknesses of a team which has quality center backs like Chiellini and Bonucci.
Gennaro Gattuso has made Milan stronger after his arrival. The old legend was still not capable of making them front-runners in the title race. At present they are 5th in the table and are miles away from Juve in terms of points.
Milan has won only 4 of their last 10 matches in both the league and Europa League. Currently, they are unbeaten in 3 matches on the trot. They have been conceding more than a goal per game in the Serie A, which is sad for a team who once had players like Paulo Maldini.
As two giants in Italian football set to lock horns, Higuain and Chiellini will face their old team once again this season.

Juventus vs AC Milan: Prediction
The reigning Italian champions will be the favorites to win the Super Cup as they have already defeated Gattuso’s side once this season in the league. With players like Ronaldo and Dybala in their squad, the Old Lady will get another silverware this season beating the red side of Milan. Since Juve is unbeaten in their last 5 matches we can bet on the Zebras to win with 1.57 odds.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men have scored 2 or more goals in 6 of their last 10 matches in both cup and league. With a total of 28 goals in the league season so far, they are scoring exactly 2 goals per match. So we can bet on the Red and Blacks to concede 2 or more goals on Wednesday with 3.00 odds.
